25th - 26th July
HERO is centered around a class of eight young people living in a small village in a war-torn country. The eight characters were all born into a war that they do not necessarily understand. Everything they learn about the war is taught to them by a very biased teacher or the army itself. The play focuses on the way their lives are shaped by the war raging all around them, the dread of the inevitable draft that looms on the horizon and the pain of loss.
